When did you start Djing?
I’ve been making music for years and have always been more of a Producer/Beatmaker/Emcee than a fully fledged DJ.
I started making my own mixes around 10 years ago and fell in love with the idea of a set and a journey within. I mix anything from Hip Hop to Trip Hop to Drum and Bass, and everything in between.
What is it about thing the makes it interesting for you?
Interesting question. For me the vibe is always really important and the ability to keep the listeners there and vibing throughout matters the most. I like to play around with tracks and mix the unexpected and as a host, you kind of need to take people on a trip and that may not necessarily mean mixing throughout the whole show, with the same tempo, or in the same genre. Being diverse, for me, is key.
What makes you decide to play a certain record during one of your sets?
Just the love for it man, if I love it chances are the listeners are going to enjoy it too. I want people to revisit the shows and stick it on at a BBQ with their mates, or bang it in the car when you’re on a mission. It’s important for me to provide consistency and quality – if the tracks I chose to play keep you there until the end of the show then I’ve done my job properly.
What’s your opinion on the importance of roots, traditions, respecting traditions and sources?
Kinda goes without saying but respecting traditions and the importance of roots and fundamentals are really important to me. I aim to deliver a consistent show and set every time and will utilise all of my skills and experience in doing so.
